Why is it so hard to find a luxury yacht charter for more than 12 guests in Greece?

In your search for a large group charter for your next vacation, you might have noticed that it is not easy to find a luxury yacht charter in Greece that allows more than 12 guests.

Why? The answer lies in the stringent EU regulations, which effectively are making it close to impossible to have more than 12 people on board a Greece yacht charter.

The stipulations basically require safety boats with Titanic parameters and additional requirements that private boat owners are not willing to fulfill.

You’re either looking for a small cruise ship or for one of the very few crewed yacht charters that fulfill the bureaucratic necessities for a commercial license to host more than 12 guests for a yacht charter in the Greek islands.

Even the largest yachts with 20+ cabins with double beds will not be able to take on more than 12 clients for yacht charter unless they agree to comply with strict parameters for sailing yachts at sea, matching cross-Atlantic travel in terms of safety equipment.

Of course, very few private owners want to replace their jetskis with parametric safety boats and prefer to charter smaller groups.

Other reasons are also quite prosaic—yacht charter owners are not interested in huge parties and issues related to them, but they will consider private offers for vetted charterers, ideally with past charter experience and recommendations.

(Yes, having an owner recommend you as a charterer is a great asset – owners love to hear their prized assets are in good hands).

But all that aside, we are, after all, here to find a solution: you want a luxury yacht for more than 12 guests that is set up for chartering in Greece. I will show you the 10 that we really like the most:

10. Something Cool | 149 ft

A Great Value, Stunning Classic Yacht with a Gym & lots of Toys, including 2 Jet Skis!

12-16 Guests

SOMETHING COOL is a 146-foot steel motor yacht built by the Italian Shipyard CPN Ancona in 1981. She underwent a major refit in 2023 and is in top condition with many new upgrades.

SOMETHING COOL accommodates 14 guests in 7 cabins, with a possibility of fitting 16 with kids upon request. Speak to one of our charter brokers for more details.

Motor Yacht SOMETHING COOL Main

What I love most about this yacht is that she stays true to the old classic nautical style; it is sure to get any maritime enthusiast drooling.

Her interior is all varnished wood, which is honestly in pristine condition, with classic maritime white and blue fabrics to contrast.

Her decorations are also of nautical theme with wall art including decorated wooden ores and paintings of classic ships. Even the napkins on the dining table have embroidered anchors on them. The attention to detail is impeccable!

SOMETHING COOL also has a fully equipped gym and a wide selection of water toys, including 2 jet skis, 2 seabobs, 2 SUPs, 1 kayak, 3 tubes, 1 water ski for adults, and 1 Jobe Scout towable.

This is a really great option for 2 families who wish to share an active and luxurious yacht charter in Greece on a truly stunning classic yacht for a very good price.

9. Donna Del Mare | 131 ft

A Beautiful Yacht with Open-Air Jacuzzi, Beach Deck, and a Large Selection of Water Toys, including 2 Jet Skis!

12-16 Guests

DONNA DEL MARE is a 131-foot steel motor yacht built by the Turkish Shipyard Aegean Yacht in 2006. She underwent a major refit in 2020.

DONNA DEL MARE offers 7 cabins to comfortably accommodate large groups of guests. Her standard capacity is 12 guests, but she can take up to 16 guests, including kids, upon request. Talk to one of our charter brokers if you are looking to bring more than 12 guests.

Motor Yacht DONNA DEL MARE 2

With a classic atmosphere of high luxury and ample outdoor space, she is the perfect yacht for charters in the Adriatic.

The sun deck features two queen loungers, a Jacuzzi, and enough deck space for a crowd. She also has a beautiful beach deck with swim ladders, a great place for a morning coffee, an evening cocktail, or a simple lounge in the sun right by the water’s edge.

Captain Peter Kisik has proudly been on board since 2016 and knows all the best spots in the Adriatic Sea! It is a great advantage to have a captain who has been with the yacht for so long, as this means he knows both the yacht and the cruising grounds extremely well. Well, it also means he has done a good job on many previous charters!

DONNA DEL MARE also has a large selection of water toys, including 2 jet skis, 1 Seabob, 1 paddleboard, 1 banana for 4, 2 donuts, 2 kayaks, water skis, a wakeboard, snorkeling equipment, scuba diving equipment, and fishing gear… And I should add that before getting into charters, Captain Peter worked as a fisherman for 24 years, so he is a great guy to go fishing with!!

8. Callisto | 164 ft

A very Affordable Luxury Yacht with a Large Guest Capacity – Enjoy more Luxury with a Shared Bill!

34 Guests

CALLISTO is a 164-foot steel motor yacht custom-built in 2000 with a major refit in 2016. She accommodates up to 34 guests in 17 cabins and comes with a crew of 16.

I must say, Callisto’s design truly captures the essence of seafaring grace with her classic lines. Her wooden interior, alongside tasteful grey and blue fabrics, evokes the timeless charm of oceanic voyages.

Motor Yacht Callisto

Stepping into her main lounge on the upper deck, one is transported into what feels like a luxurious floating hotel, complete with lounging areas for all guests and a fully stocked bar manned by a skilled bartender.

The lounge opens onto the sundeck furnished with several sun loungers for relaxing and sunbathing.

12-16 Guests

WIND OF FORTUNE is a 170-foot steel motor yacht built by Italian Shipyard CPN Ancona in 1981. It was built in the same year and yard as SOMETHING COOL, which is number 10 on my list, though WIND OF FORTUNE is larger and has more amenities.

She underwent a major refit in 2020. As a standard, she accommodates 12 guests in 17 cabins, but this can be extended to 16 guests, including kids, upon request.

Motor Yacht WIND OF FORTUNE

Her interior is drool-worthy! Yea, I am not sure that is a word, but that is truly what she is. She is super elegant, with glossy varnished wood and a timeless nautical theme, a very classic look!

6. Harmony V | 180 ft

Mini Cruiseship Style with Large Social areas, including American Bar & Al Fresco Dining

49 Guests

HARMONY V is a 180-foot steel motor yacht built in 2009 at the Greek Shipyard Piraeus in Athens. She underwent a major refit in 2017.

HARMONY V is one of the few charter yachts of her size in Greece that can accommodate as many as 49 guests in 25 cabins: 6 doubles and 40 singles. She is the yacht with the largest guest capacity on this list!

Motor Yacht Harmony V

The whole yacht layout is designed to accommodate a large crowd. Her social areas include a spacious lounge with classy seating, an American bar, and the joining dining room, which features large windows providing beautiful views of the Greek Islands.

There is also an external dining area located on the Sun Deck, where meals are served al fresco. The Sun Deck is ideal for basking under the sun, reading a good book, or gazing at the scenery.

Motor Yacht Harmony V

The cabins are conveniently spread over the main and upper decks. Each stateroom has a private en-suite bathroom equipped with flat-screen TV sets, DVD players, mini-fridges, hairdryers, individually controlled A/C, and safety deposit boxes. All cabins have large windows to provide stunning sea views.

Motor Yacht Harmony V

Included in HARMONY V’s charter price is fuel for 6 hours cruising on average per day, meals onboard (Buffet breakfast and one main meal per day), welcome and farewell cocktail reception with canapes, captain’s dinner, freshly baked cake, biscuits, fruits, filter coffee, teas, and purified water during the day.

This is an exception option for an affordable Greek yacht charter for a very large group!

HARMONY V

180 ft Piraeus 2009 (refit 2017)

from €129,400 per week + expenses

Variety Voyager, Harmony V, and Callisto are all the same parent company and offer quite specific itineraries, and have done so for many years – they stick to Greece and know it very well. Each yacht has a cruise coordinator onboard with you who helps plan the trip and book tours. Most of these larger yachts can also cruise at night, which means you wake up at sunrise as you are pulling into a beautiful port. Essentially, you can fit a lot more in with some of these yachts.

5. Elysium | 210 ft

Wellness yacht charter with large Guest Capacity – Amazing Spa Facilities, Gym, & Open-Air Jacuzzi!

49 Guests

ELYSIUM is a 210-foot steel motor yacht built by the Astilero de Mallorca Shipyard in 1999. She underwent a major refit in 2021 and is in excellent condition.

Just like HARMONY V above, ELYSIUM can accommodate 49 guests across 25 cabins: 1 Single and 24 Double cabins with Queen-sized beds with plush mattresses, snuggly all-season duvets, and a flat-screen TV with movies. All Double cabins can be converted to Twin cabins upon request. All cabins are with en-suite facilities.

ELYSIUM is a small step up in price from HARMONY V, but she is a big step up in terms of onboard amenities. The major difference is that she has an onboard spa, as well as a massage room, gym, and on-deck jacuzzi!

This is the ideal yacht for a large reunion, a company trip, or perhaps even a wedding party wishing to share a luxurious charter vacation in Greece with a bit of extra pampering!

She also comes with a great selection of water toys, including 2 tenders, 6 Sea-Doo Sea scooters, a canoe kayak, a water ski, paddleboards, windsurfing equipment, and snorkeling equipment. The aft deck has a swimming platform, which makes it very easy to access the water and launch water toys.

This option is perfect for large groups looking for a yacht charter offering a mix of relaxation, wellness treatments, and exciting water activities, ensuring everyone finds something enjoyable.

3. Le Ponant | 276 ft

Amazing Value Expedition Yacht with onboard Expedition Leader & Naturalist! The Ideal Yacht Charter for the Adventurous!

32 Guests

And now to something a little different: LE PONANT is a 276-foot, 3-masted sailing yacht built in 1990. She just underwent a complete rebuild in 2022, so the interior and exterior decks are all new. She accommodates 32 guests in 16 cabins and has a large crew of 34.

The experience of sailing on LE PONANT is wonderful; with minimal running rigging, the crew is able to leave the expansive deck areas free for guests to relax while silently cruising under sail. (The captain and crew make the most of every opportunity to sail rather than motor.)

Sailing yacht Le Ponant

The cuisine on board is outstanding and a big part of the experience. The Executive Chef is French, and there is a team of five in the galley.

The yacht’s crew also includes a Beautician, a Sports Coach, an Expedition Leader, and a Naturalist, enhancing guest adventures with expert guidance for both adults and children.

For explorations off the beaten path, LE PONANT is equipped with four expedition-style Zodiac tenders, ideal for discovering remote coastlines.

Sailing yacht Le Ponant

I included LE PONANT because she presents a unique opportunity to experience something more: expedition-style cruising. And since the sailing conditions are so great in the Mediterranean, why not be on a sailing yacht charter and experience moving by the power of the elements?

LE PONANT is not just limited to Greece but has itineraries that span the globe, including upcoming trips in the Kimberleys in northern Australia, Indonesia, and Papua. If your travel plans don’t align with her being in Greece, consider joining her to explore other extraordinary parts of the world.

Sailing yacht Le Ponant

The value for money offered by LE PONANT is also remarkable since the charter rate includes all food, drinks, fuel, port fees, agent fees, and taxes!!! Make your own calculation about how this compares to other yachts… and consider the level of service from 34 crew and the completely new interior and exterior.

The yacht’s captain, Jean-David, grew up onboard since his father was the first Captain and shareholder in the initial ownership structure. Jean-David is a charming Captain who maintains a happy and motivated crew—you can’t fail to be impressed.

This is the right yacht charter for something who longs for a true adventure with a crew who has a deep passion and personal connection to what they do!

2. Lauren L | 295 ft

A truly Glamorous Yacht with amazing Spa facilities and a Large Conference Room – A Business man’s Dream!

36 Guests

LAUREN L is a 295-foot luxury motor yacht designed by Naval Architect ALPHA MARINE and built by German Shipyard Cassens-Werft in 2002 with a refit in 2017.

LAUREN L sleeps up to 36 guests in 20 cabins, including a master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, 8 double cabins, and 10 double/twin cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to 40 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.

Luxury Motor Yacht Lauren L

I am not sure how I can do the interior justice with words; it is simply a feast for the eyes!

I am going to use the word glamorous to describe her main saloon. The use of rich wood paneling throughout adds a warm, classic, luxurious foundation typical of traditional luxury yacht design.

The furniture is plush-comfy, with lots of sofas and armchairs; it oozes sit down with a whiskey and a good friend. I especially love the upholstery, which is of various colors and patterns but with a dominant satin blue.

Luxury Motor Yacht Lauren L

Uuh, and all the decorative elements, such as the many beautiful lamps, cushions, and statues with marine motifs, like the fantastic turtle sculpture seen in the picture above, and a beautifully patterned carpet on the floor, it is really amazingly done!

The interiors are well-lit, with integrated lighting in the ceilings and additional lamp lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The reflective ceiling in the first image adds a modern touch, enlarging the space visually and adding an element of glamour. There, I used the word again.

But enough about the styling… LAUREN L amenities include a fully equipped gym, a library/TV room, a kid’s playroom, a fully equipped spa, and a beauty salon with dedicated staff (a steam room, a sauna, an aromatherapy room, and a massage room with LPG equipment).

And here is something extra: LAUREN L also has a large conference room with seats for 17 people around a large wooden table!

1. Christina O | 325 ft

A World War II Yacht previously owned by Onassis and visited by Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, and Winston Churchill, among others!

34 Guests

This is one of my favorite yachts of all time, and it is not just because she is super famous but because she is iconic, has an incredible history, AND has everything you could dream of for a luxury yacht charter vacation!

CHRISTINA O is a 325-foot steel ship designed by the naval architect Costas Carabelas and built by Canadian Vickers in 1942. She underwent a major refit in 2022, during which she received many new additions, including a new jacuzzi bar and extended spa facilities.

She can accommodate up to 34 guests with her 17 cabins.

But now for the real treat: Perhaps the most written-about yacht in history, the legendary CHRISTINA O has witnessed some of the most iconic events over the last century.

Built in 1943, this vessel first served as the Canadian naval frigate HMCS Stormont during World War II. – She was there for the D-Day landings.

Fast forward to 1954, and enter Aristotle Onassis, a Greek shipping tycoon with a vision. He transformed the robust warship into a luxury yacht, rechristening it after his daughter, Christina.

The yacht’s interiors screamed extravagance, decked out with bar stools covered in whale penis leather—yes, you read that correctly.

Christina O became the floating playground for the elite, hosting icons like Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, and Winston Churchill, who you can see in the picture, later had a library dedicated to him. It even played host to the fairytale wedding of Monaco’s Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly.

Today, available for charter, she remains the perfect setting for world-class entertaining, offering a unique opportunity to cruise in style and comfort.

Corporate incentives, wedding anniversaries, special birthdays, or just to cruise and relax with your loved ones. With more deck space than most yachts built today, CHRISTINA O can cruise with 157 guests on board (subject to terms and conditions). The elegant dining room can seat up to 42 people, 28 of which are at the main table.

The yacht’s Head Chef produces Michelin Star standard cuisine, assisted by a Pastry Chef to create fabulous desserts. There is also a Sushi Master and expert in Asian and Japanese cuisine on board. If wine is something you want to enjoy, there is a wine expert available as part of the CHRISTINA O team.

Who are We?

At DMA Yachting, we are proud to have a team of individuals who have real on-water experience. Many of our brokers have worked or lived on yachts themselves and crossed oceans.

This firsthand experience allows us to truly understand life at sea in both the shoes of crew and guests and the details that make a luxury yacht charter an exceptional experience.

We closely inspect yachts and meet in person with captains and crew to ensure every element of the charter meets our high standards.

Our yearly participation in yacht shows like the EMMYS, and MEDYS helps us stay on top of industry trends and client needs.

We are here to guide you through every step of your charter, from the moment you reach out to the moment your yacht charter ends.

Alex was outstanding

Alex was outstanding. He was always very responsive to emails and texts with my many questions.

The boat he recommended for my group was perfect.

I would use DMA again.

An incredible experience

Very professional, communicated clearly and planned an amazing trip for us. Louis Lamprell did an amazing job connecting us with the unbridled yacht and crew. It was a trip of a lifetime. Our family highly recommends both DMA yachting and the unbridled charter. Everything was perfection!

This was a trip of a lifetime

This was a trip of a lifetime! We booked with Nadja at DMA yachting and she made sure the entire process was easy and no problems. Our charter was with Zuri3 and our Captain Andre and First Mate Jana made our trip amazing! They made sure everything was taken care and treated us like royalty. This is not just a vacation this is an experience of a lifetime.

Louis was great from beginning to end and walked me through the whole process. He helped me find a great boat that fit within our time and cost preferences. He explained the differences between the different builds and the pros and cons. Once we selected the boat, he explained and walked me through the whole booking process and answered all my questions. Finally, he checked in with me before, during, and after the charter to make sure everything met our expectations. I can’t recommend Louis enough if you are planning a charter, and I will definitely be in touch for our next trip!
